Here’s a prediction. Christmas 2004 is going to be big for toy robots and we reckon that among the fastest moving will be the Robosapien from Wowwee.
This hard as nails upright robot might not be as clever as the Sony QRIO, but it does boast 67 pre-programmed functions including kick, throw etc, is fully conversant in caveman and can perform some neat Kung Fu kicks. The word is that it should be coming to the UK later this year with a retail price of around £80. Apparently a girlfriend is on the cards too.
